Forum: The right (and wrong) tools

Discuss all the tools for your project: what you use, what you broke, etc.

  1. Good soldering equipment?

    So after trying the craftsman soldering iron (again), and realizing (again) that all of the tips are bad--they don't heat right, the core gets hot, but the outside just chips and falls apart, without reaching a usable temperature--I'm ready to buy something descent. I don't need professional...

  3. Post pictures of your tool collection/boxes/organization (or lack thereof).

    I thought it would be interesting to see everyone's tool collections, how you organize them etc. I'll be posting pictures of mine tomorrow. (Came up with this idea at 1:00 AM...) I know some of you have a pretty insane amount of tools, which are freakin' sweet to look at, so show em' off!...

  4. I need a decent, preferably cheap air compressor.

    I just need a compressor that will have enough CFM to push a decent impact. Cheaper is better. Must be able to zip off tire lugs, flywheel bolts, etc. Typical stuff. Doesn't need to be able to break stuck CV nuts or anything. Any suggestions? I know absolutely nothing about compressors or air...

  5. Harbor Freight Earthquake Impact Wrench

    Bought one a couple days ago and used it to do a tire rotation today. Freaking amazing. Just as a "test," I threw it on my Crank Pulley nut today to see if it would take it off (since I'm doing my timing belt this weekend anyway). It took literally six seconds before it came loose. It hadn't...

  7. New Harbor Freight 90 amp welder

    I was at harbor freight last week and noticed that Chicago Electric had replaced the old line of 90 amp flux core welders with a newer version. So I opened the cabinet on one to see what was changed. Unfortunately there was no rectifier so my hopes for the switch from AC to DC was shot down. No...

  8. What do you use to lift/pull your engine?

    Just wondering what idea's anyone might have here for manipulating engines/transmission combos. I've installed/replaced engines and transmissions on multiple occasions in my past, but have a different situation now - I live in a suburban type home that has "trusses" in the roof, and while I have...

  9. Soldering 101

    I thought maybe an article about soldering would be something I could contribute here that would be of interest - and the purpose of this post is to gauge the relative interest of all here in such an article. If any are interested - I can follow up wit more details/pics and take some more effort...

  10. My Christmas present to myself...

    I have four cars - and a one car garage. Of these four cars, which are all Celicas, three of them are "keepers" and one is for parts. I will be needing to really get my hands dirty after the holidays - as I have to pull some engines. I had some big ideas about putting up a beam in my...

  11. New (old) flaring tool

    I have this rust bucket Corolla that I am trying to get setup for my step-son to use - and it has rusted brake lines. So I have tried patching in some extensions - with limited results. I remember when I worked on my Plymouth cars - I redid all my brake and fuel lines from scratch - and I...

  12. What air impacts wrenches do you use?

    Right now I've only got my one 1/2" Snap On MG725 Been pretty happy with it. Best part about it for me, it's got a silencing chamber! Hurray to being able to hear 10 years from now. PS: The 600ft/lbsFW and 800ft/lbsREV isn't bad either.

  13. What Rachets Do You Use?

    I use a Snap On; Ratchet, Dual 80 Technology, Flex-Head, Comfort Handle, 3/8" drive, 9 9/16" The fine tooth is really, really nice. If you haven't tried one go find one to try out. It makes it possible for you to use a ratchet in confines that previously you'd have to use a wrench. I...

  14. What Conventional Wrenches Do You Use?

    Snap On: Set, Wrench, Metric, Combination, Long, 12-Point (10 pcs.) (10-19 mm) Stock #: OEXLM710B Like I said, good tools make a big difference. But honestly you can get the flank drive style wrenches from most tool manufacturers. What makes them better is instead of using the edges of the...

  19. Fasteners!

    Ok, So I have a hard time keeping track of every nut and bolt during a project. Moreover, I would often MUCH prefer to replace a lot of the rust caked bolts I'm replacing with shiny new ones. Who do you use for your fasteners? My best is always Lowes, but feel like I'm shopping in the...
